VBScript not registered on Windows Vista
I tried installing iTunes on my computer, which runs Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit, and I received an error about it not being able to find VBScript.
Apparently, Windows Vista does not automatically register the VBScript libraries when it is installed.
This entry is meant to show people with the same problem, who have, perhaps, found this page through a search engine, how to register VBScript.
Follow these steps.
1. Open the Start Menu and navigate to the All Programs / Accessories folder. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator. Select Continue when the security dialog is displayed.
2. In the Command Prompt window, navigate to the system32 directory by typing the following command and pressing Enter. cd \windows\system32
3. Register the 32-bit VBScript library by typing the following command and pressing Enter. regsvr32 vbscript.dll
If you are running the 32-bit version of Windows Vista, you're finished. Type exit to close the Command Prompt. If you are running the 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you now need to register the 64-bit version of the library. Continue reading.
4. Navigate to the 64-bit system directory by typing the following command and pressing Enter. cd \windows\syswow64
5. Register the 64-bit VBScript library by typing the following command and pressing Enter. regsvr32 vbscript.dll
Now, you're finished. Type exit to close the Command Prompt.
Hopefully, people with this problem will find these instructions easy to follow. I had to wade through a number of forum posts and various web sites in order to figure out this short procedure.
